Rwandan GDP – 1990 to Present

(Numbers shown in USD)

One of the Fastest Growing Economies in the World.

Since the turbulent 1990’s, Rwanda and the region around it has not only recovered, but thrived, mostly through the combined effects of small business entrepreneurship arising in the country.  Here are some key facts about Rwanda’s growth:

  • Rwanda’s GDP has grown at an average rate of 8% each year since 2001, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and poverty is shrinking at similar rates.
  • A vast majority of the growth can be attributed to the efforts of small business owners everywhere
  • However, the greatest obstacle facing further private sector growth in Rwanda is attaining financing for larger trade deals and sales.  This is where Kountable comes in.
